  • Mad Max: Fury Road

    Mad Max: Fury Road 2015

    ★★★★½ Watched 17 May, 2015

    The perfect action film. A simple plot (protagonists trying to outrun some extremely nasty antagonists) that doesn't pander to the audience. It's an onslaught of tension and visual fury that is unrelentingly entertaining. Smart female characters are to be found in a picture that doesn't feel the need to spell everything out for the audience. It's a world that feels lived in to the point where we just join in with the insanity without question.

  • Bull Durham

    Bull Durham 1988

    ★★★★ Rewatched 16 May, 2015

    BULL DURHAM is a film that has stuck with me since I first saw it in 1988 .
    Recently upgrading my VHS copy to Blu-ray, I decided it was time to revisit this film and not only did I find it holds up, I think I may have even enjoyed it more. That may come from age because this is the kind of movie aimed at an adult audience that rarely gets made any more.

    Zodiac 2007

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 09 Apr, 2013

    I hadn't seen this movie since opening night in 2007 (went straight from work to the Varsity theater in Toronto for it) and not only has this movie held up but it's better then I remember it which is tough because I thought it was great to begin with.

  • Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor

    Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor 2013

    ½ Watched 03 Mar, 2014 over the top bad. The last 45 minutes or so will leave you breathless - and not so much in a good way.

    Kim Kardashian is in it though....which really means nothing at all.
